Firefox opens a pdf in the browser but I can't save it as a pdf file. How do I save pdf files as pdfs?

more options

When I open pdf files in the browser I do not have a way to save the file as a pdf file on my hard drive. I can only save it as a firefox image file one page at a time. I can't print it either except as individual pages from the image file. When I use the "Save As" icon my only options are to save as a Firefox file. What am I missing? Thanks.

Try this, when I right clicked on the document to rotate the image a noticed a tool bar appeared at the bottom of the page with the save icon. It then disappeared, but by hovering at near the bottom of the document the tool bar appears and I can save the PDF.
